From a day of days it was almost impossible to whittle it down to five moves. These got the nod:
Below is the breakdown (from the official Red Bull King of the Air rulebook) of what the judges scored on under the two catagories: Extreme Big Air and Overall Impression…According to this, these were your top five best airs of the 2016 event.
Go as hard and high as possible. The height in combination with extreme moves is priority, but we will also take the horizontal distance travelled in account combined with certain moves (megaloops etc.)
Controlled extreme high moves. Think about extremely powered and or extremely technical, or ultimately a combination of this. (innovate, take risks, high speed in- and out of the trick, wow-factor, loops etc.)
20% Style & execution
Smooth landings, no dangling, tweaks, grabs, angle of the kite, ‘perform-a-show’, ‘be in control (throughout the trick)’.
Variation within the three best EXTREME BIG AIR moves. Be a ‘complete’ rider, showing the same move or a variation of it on both tacks. Or show that you can perform total different moves on a high level. (megaloops / big air board offs / handle passes / rotations etc or a combination of these)
